    The live telecast of the 69th Tony Awards on CBS took place on Sunday, June 7, at New York’s iconic Radio City Music Hall. Firehouse Productions (Red Hook, NY) was again brought on board to meet the show’s considerable audio needs with an arsenal of Shure wireless microphones. With a steady stream of ensemble cast musical numbers, constant costume changes for hosts Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming, and a live orchestra, the audio challenge was considerable, especially because virtually every… View this story

    Kaltman Creations has announced the RF-ResQ (Receiver Enhancement System), an antenna signal processor designed to help with the RF congestion and “spectrum squeeze” issues that have plagued the pro audio industry in recent years.  “We secured the rights and ownership to advanced filtering technology that was previously used in military, nuclear plant and critical data communications,” states Kaltman Creations president Mark L. Kaltman, “and adapted it for the UHF bands used in pro audio wireless.” Housed in a rugged single-rack… View this story

    wireless systems
    Craig Leerman 05/07/15 09:22 AM,
    Wireless systems are a key component in almost every facet of live entertainment production, especially concerts and corporate meetings and events. The demand continues to increase as the supply of available bandwidth is both shrinking and becoming more congested. As a result, pre-planning and wireless frequency coordination are becoming more important, particularly as the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) is preparing to sell off more of the UHF spectrum where the majority of wireless microphones and monitoring systems operate (currently 470-698… View this story

    The recent football extravaganza – Rose Bowl, Pro Bowl and Super Bowl – meant plenty of audio professionals were busy making sure the hundreds of thousands in attendance as well as the hundreds of millions viewing the broadcasts heard the proceedings. One of the key things that makes it all work is communication, as in constant crew communication, and it’s the job of the intercom (comm) systems to make that happen. Particularly in light of the current turbulence in the… View this story

    Shure wireless microphone systems, wired mics, and in-ear monitoring systems were a near-constant presence at last Sunday’s 57th Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, which features 23 live musical performances. As usual, musicians were permitted to use their preferred microphones for their performances. Although artists brought their own custom earphones, all in-ear monitoring systems were Shure PSM1000, with 24 channels split between two stages, marking the fourth consecutive year that the Grammy production team chose Shure… View this story

    Line 6 has unveiled the new Relay G70 and Relay G75 digital wireless systems, designed to support multiple instruments and serve as the “control center” of musicians’ live performance rigs. Each receiver supports multiple transmitters, and features locking 1/4-inch inputs that allow guitarists to plug right in, no special cables required. Preset scenes enable performers to control signal routing, levels and more, with the single press of a footswitch. For example, guitarists can set different levels for instruments with active,… View this story
